|Maus - Recogniser - [drift004]|
This album plays like a soundtrack to a movie that goes through a variety of twists and turns. The songs create a range of moods, using many different sounds. The dramatic bells, guitars, and synths lay down the groundwork for those crunchy, bleepy IDM beats that Drift Records loves.

|Sinestetici - The Definition of Imperfection - [drift001]|
If emotion can be considered a sensation, then Sinestetici and her fellow artists have created a truly synesthetic experience. The listener is taken on a journey of intense emotion as her soothing vocals float in and out of the ambience and intricate rhythms created by Daigoro, DoF, and KiloWatts. This is a fitting first release for Drift Records, as it perfectly captures that "drift" feeling, like a fragile flower petal sailing on an uncertain breeze.

|Set In Sand - Mini Splintered Things - [drift006]|
Set In Sand has created a unique style of his own through the fusion of many other styles. Crunchy Trip Hop beats lay the groundwork for his guitar based IDM ala DoF and Skytree. As an added treat, cLOUDDEAD reminiscent vocals bounce in and out of songs. Mini Splintered Things is the perfect album to listen to while wandering aimlessly over sidewalks on a sunny spring day, stepping to the beat, and bobbing your head in rhythm...
